Delivery & Impact Measurement
We recognise that, despite the best intentions of all involved, commitments to place local people into the jobs created locally by major development schemes are often unachieved.
A key reason for this is the challenge of meeting the very specific needs of the construction industry through mainstream employment support, which can result in ineffective matching between the needs of the employer and the skills of the candidate. This is demotivating for all involved.
We have deploy our significant sector knowledge and our client-focused approach to deliver robust employment brokerage services for major schemes across London.
The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) was formed in April 2012 to use the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to develop a dynamic new heart for east London, creating opportunities for local people and driving innovation and growth.
K10 provided support to LLDC across each of the Olympic projects to ensure that all construction activities presented accessible, inclusive training and employment opportunities for Londoners. A key element of this was the provision of a targeted job brokerage service that effectively matched the human resource requirements of the contractors on each site with Londoners. K10’s understanding of the specific skills and qualifications required for each trade was at the heart of the success of this service.
We recognise that effective brokerage is about recognising that there are a number of customers whose needs must be met by the service provided: the contractor; the employment agency promoting potential applicants and the applicant themselves
